I am Pieter-Jan Martens, master student in Industrial Engineering at the University of Group T in Leuven, Belgium specialising in Biochemistry.
This year I am excited to write my Master’s Thesis on a subject that I am very fascinated about. I am doing my internship at the Laboratory of Clinical and Experimental Endocrinology at the University Hospital Gasthuisberg in Leuven. My topic involves Immunology; one of the most interesting branches in the biomedical sciences, Type 1 Diabetes; a not yet fully understood disease and Proteins; one of the elementary components in the human body that can cause major effects. All of these together make for a very diverse and intriguing subject.
Aside from writing my thesis, I will also be updating this blog page and hopefully convey some of my excitement onto my readers.
Feel free to give your honest opinion and comment on my posts, maybe we can even open a debate, who knows.
